So remember the whole christmastime fiasco with that group of brats pretending to be Rick McKee and trying to get the music off people? Well it's begun again for the the new Celebrate parade. Not anyone posing to be Rick, but other mildly amusing attempts. The rehearsal tracks are already out there and they have them of course but they'll still want the underliner and opening/closing.

I'm working out getting the account taken care of on Micechat and then when it's taken care of I'll post the messages on here for your chuckling pleasure.

I have the underliner, which has the opening and closing, but I think they got the message last year with Christmastime not to ask me for anything. I hope they bug you instead. :(

Looking forward to the posts. I can't wait to hear some of the excuses on why they need the audio. Sometimes, you really hear some good ones. :(

I just don't get the mentality. Yeah, I'd love this stuff too, but make stuff up? It's like life or death for them, and they'll do crazy stuff for stupid reasons. I just don't want anything that badly, I guess, and don't understand those that do...

Oh, and yes, I'd love to read the posts for a good laugh, once you're able to....morbid curiosity on how the "other side" acts.

Here are some of the excuses that I have heard:

I'm putting a Christmas loop together and I need one of the Christmastime tracks to complete the collection. You should give this to me because I have the other tracks and we should only circulate this audio to people that already have it.

I have a family member who isn't going to make it very long and they would really appreciate it if they could listen to the music.

A family member was just busted for drug possession and I am really bummed out. If you sent me this piece of audio, it could really help me out.

Hey, this is Rick McKee. I've been really busy with work and I haven't been able to track down this one piece of music. Do you think you can send it to me? I could always get it from one of my inside sources, but I figured this would be the fastest way to get it.

I made induction recordings of this and I like to see how your recordings came out. Can you send them to me to compare to what I did?

[So and so] agreed that you would send me this audio if I asked for it.

Now you can see why I no longer share audio...

Uh...those are some pretty lousy excuses. Whatever happened to just being honest and asking? Either way, the answer would be the same...what, because you have this "circumstance" somebody might be nicer? Also, no wonder Rick is upset, they sure don't care about tarnishing his reputation do they? Bunch of dummies (and if you guys are reading this, so what). I mean, really, "drug possession", death??

It's simple. Either the audio is out there and somebody will share, or they won't. Don't be a douche...

I have a boil on my bottom and, sending me everything that Disney has ever recorded would make it go away.

Greetings said:
Hello Almandot, My name is Tracy, Pleasure to meet you! I apologize for such a random email out of the blue like this and I hope you do not mind. The reason I am getting in contact with you is I got in a conversation with one of my best friends from our Church group about my recent trip I took with my youngest daughter to Walt Disney World and I mentioned to my friend how much my daughter absolutely fell in Love with the music to the new Celebration Parade I believe it is called. That is all she talked about on the flight back home haha. My friend mentioned that she heard or read once online that some performers and or cast members at Disney receive the parade music, although she was not 100% sure. Well to make a long story short she told me the other day in Church that she did some reaserch in addtion to talking to a some friends of hers online about a couple members that she thought may be performers or cast members at Disney and your member name was one she meantioned. She encourage me to sign up to Micechat and get in touch with a couple of people. She did say she was not 100% sure about these members and that it may be a long shot. I am so very sorry if I am incorrect about you Almandot and I hope you do not take offence to this email at all. I am only trying to reach out to someone that may be able to help my daughter find the music to this parade.

If by chance you are a performer or cast member for Disney and did happen to have the parade music, would there be any chance you could share it with my daughter? I know this is probably a lot to ask considering you do not know me and vise versa. It would mean the world to her if you could share it with her. Or maybe you know of someone else I could ask? That would be very helpful as well. If not that is completly fine and I would understand.
If this would help you to know, there was a particual part of the parade music that my daughter fell in love with more than anything, so she said, and that was the announcement that the parade was starting and then the instrumental music? if that helps. She remembers more than I do although I do remember there was a young woman waving her red ribbons in front of these two gentlemen holding the parade sign, then the Mickey float arrived? Not to sure how to describe it other than that I am sorry to say, old age I guess haha. Hopefully you understand what she is talking about more than I do haha.

Again I am so sorry if I am wrong about you being a performer or cast member Almandot, and I hope you did not mind this email from me. I can not tell you though how happy you would make my daughter if you did have this music and would not mind sharing it with her, or if you could point us in a direction to someone else we could ask?

Thank you so very much hunny, and may God Bless You! :)

Hello once again Almandot. I am so sorry, I forgot to include something in my previous email to you. Old age once again hahaha and I am still getting used to these online websites. If you or someone you know did have this music I explained that my daughter is looking for, I would be more than happy to offer you or someone a little something for it. I understand this is a lot to ask for considering I do not know you and vise versa so to me I would feel better buy offering you or someone else something for this music. I am not sure what would be acceptable, $40, $50? It would be well worth it to me as I know this is what I would more than likely pay for a cd at Walt Disney World if they sold this music.

I understand Almandot if you rather not be bothered with getting in contact with me. Again I know I do not know you at all and vise versa, I am only going by what information my best friend from Church provided me with.

Thank you once again hunny and take care of yourself, May God Bless You!
Tracy
there' s a lot of fun things to talk about in this message (haha) but my favorite part is the section about which part of the music she's really looking for.. because from my personal experience when a child falls in love with a parade they can never stop talking about wanting the announcement that the parade is starting and the instrumental underliner

* * Makes mental note not to give Almandot the underliner to the parade * *

I find calling you "hunny" and invoking God in the request to be pretty funny. My guess is that "Tracy" is really Fusion, or whatever the heck his name is. The writing style is very similar to the messages I received in the past.

Almandot, don't you see, God is commanding you to release this audio for the good of mankind! Plus, by selling it, you can do your share to stimulate the economy. :(

These stories/requests are really getting out of hand. Remember the good old days when collecting audio was fun? You got to meet a lot of nice people who enjoyed the same hobby and were polite and respectful to others.

Do you think Tracy will still want God to bless Almandot if he doesn't send her "daughter" the underliner? :(

Dot, my pastor from Church said I should offer you a bribe for unauthorized music. God would want it that way, and it's the Christian thing to do....
 
These people really kill me. They will stop at nothing to try to get people to give them something. Of all things to bring a church group into this to make you feel like they are good, trustworthy people or something because they belong to a church group? What is the world coming to?

Man, that is one LOOONG excuse to get some Disney music! At least nobody was dead, or deathly ill. And of course, it makes total sense that some random WDW guest would be able to track you down as a CM on Micechat, Almandot...right? Your name just happens to come up in their conversation as a person to ask?

Oh, what kind of response did you give "her" anyway? I'm curious if you were nice about it, or if you just called them out instead? Again, I don't get the desparation...why couldn't they just be up front and just ask you if you had it or not? That would have been my approach...just ask nicely, with no made-up excuses. It's either a yes or no answer...a church group ain't going to help.

Also, I do love the "subtle" description of what part of the parade they were actually looking for...so casual, right? Although I have to say that as a kid I did happen to remember the "Electrical Fanfare" from the MSEP pretty fondly...but still...

MSEP is a whole different story for a variety of reasons, not least of which for one it doesn't say the word celebrate 15 times in the introduction alone and it's more than just a 300 beat per minute synth and guitar beat :(

Wow!! Just wow....

It is amazing just how obvious that was. It isn't even a good attempt at a lie.

Personally, I think it is extremely disrespectful that someone would use references to church to try to obtain audio.

Horizons- you weren't kidding... I really did need to read the stories for myself to believe them!!

I have found none of their attempts to be even half way believable. They should have tried to be honest and upfront, but it's too late for that now.

These guys are model citizens. :rolleyes:

Wow....I had no clue all of this was going on. Where've I been the last few years? :blink:
Be glad you were not exposed to this insanity.
